“Good food, very slow service”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

We went with a dinner group, about 8-10 of us in all. We were the only ones in the place on a Thursday night. The waiter was very pleasant, but the service was very slow. It probably took 45 minutes for our appetizers to come out, and we didn't all get served at the same time. It seemed that our group overwhelmed the staff of what appeared to be one waiter and one cook. The food was VERY good. I tried both the fried plantains and the chicken pattie appetizers, and both were excellent! For my entree, I had the curry goat and the jerk chicken, and sides of cabbage and spinach. The flavors were intense and delicious. Some of our fellow dinners complained about having to pick the bones out of the meat dishes, but I thought it just made the dish more authentic, and probably added flavor as well. The atmosphere is also very authentic. It would be right at home on the beach in Jamaica, but seems a little too rustic for most North Dallas tastes.

“Caribbean grill on forrest!”
Reviewed 17 July 2008

I love the vibe at the Caribbean Grill... Reggae music's always playing...The drinks are good and you can't forget the great food...
I believe they have a nice buffet that features Jerk Pork, Chicken, curried goat, rice and peas, fried fish and more Mon thru Friday for lunch...

I've never been at night, but understand Friday is the busiest late night with live bands and DJ's playing the jams... Saturday's late night crowd is supposed to be a little less hectic. Good sound system and decent size dance floor...

I met a lot of Caribbean and Sout American people here and if I'm rollin in Dallas, it's a stop I'll make just to see whatt's up!....

“fun and food”
Reviewed 26 January 2007

this is more than just a restaurant. they carry a lot of traditional caribbean dishes and the people remind you of your local jamaican restaurant. A very cool vibe. surrounded by shops to purchase authentic jamaican groceries. the music is constantly pumping reggae music in your ear. there's always someone playing dominos in the corner. be sure your game is up. the waitresses serve you with a pleasant smile and the accent that would make you forget you're in dallas. combine all that together with the fact that after 10, it turns into a party for you to sweat to hottest in reggae music. there's always something going on there. pool tables, dominos, real jerk chicken dishes, sound stage, and real rum punch! what more could you ask for???
